Deadline for Production of Project Gunrunner Documents Arrives

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 6:46 pm

Today Mike Vanderboegh of the blog Sipsey Street Irregulars — who, along with David Cordea, broke the Project Gunrunner story — put up a post you need to bookmark: a collection of links to all letters written by Charles Grassley and Darrell Issa regarding this program.

There is one letter I would like to draw your attention to specifically: this letter from Issa to the Acting Director of BATFE, demanding the production of documents regarding Project Gunrunner. The part that makes this interesting: the deadline for production of the documents is 5:00 p.m., March 30, 2011. That is today. A few hours ago, actually.

Assuming that BATFE has given Issa the finger — as I very much expect they have — the next logical step is issuing subpoenas.

This is about to get interesting.

P.S. One more letter that is worth noting: this letter sent by Issa to Hillary Cllinton yesterday. The deadline is April 12. I bet Hillary gives Issa the finger too. Meaning, I would assume, more subpoenas.

Isn’t it nice to be in the majority?

P.P.S. Michelle Malkin knocked it out of the park on Hannity tonight discussing Project Gunrunner, and had a wonderful post and column about it here.

  1. This story seems to be gaining steam but I have a feeling the Obama Administration will defy any subpoenas, just as it did in the Fort Hood/Hasan shooting. The Administration might cite the pending IG investigation as its excuse for noncompliance, but sooner or later won’t there be a Congressional hearing with testimony from ATF whistleblowers and others? I hope so and that it provides answers about what happened.

  2. Transparency, it’s what’s for dinner!

  3. It seems the only way subpoenas were honored in the NBP case was by people resigning from the Justice Dept.
    If this is transparancy, the LaBrea Tar Pits provide the water for Crystal Geyser.

  4. I expect the documents that are wanted will disappear, but perhaps they will turn up on a table in the Whitehouse in a couple of years. That worked before.

  6. The administration actually knows where the Mexican cartels get guns but lying to us about it makes them feel superior to all those bitter gun-clinging hicks.
